An American Family History

Nathaniel Hunn and Priscilla Kitchen

Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts
King Philip’s War was a bloody and costly series of raids and skirmishes in 1675 and 1676 between the Native American people and the colonials. King Philip was the Native American leader Metacom.

Nathaniel Hunn and Priscilla Kitchen married in October, 1672.

According to The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Volume 3 by R. C. Anderson, G. F. Sanborn and M. L. Sanborn , the Nathaniel Hunn who married Priscilla Kitchen of Salem was not a descendant of George Hunn, the immigrant.

Priscilla Hunn Walton was born on January 21, 1672/3.
Sara Hunn was born August 6, 1674.
Nathaniel Hunn was born about 1676.

Nathaniel was killed in June, 1677 in the Battle at Moore's Brook at Scarborough. The town was destroyed during King Philip's War. The Massachusetts militia was sent to secure it for resettlement. On June 29, 1677, the company was ambushed by warriors under Chief Squando. Of the one hundred soldiers, fifty to sixty were left dead.
